skeptically after abbas' speech at the u.n. yesterday which was just terrible, just attack after attack after attack, and no opportunity to really reconcile, but he speaks differently to the world audience, to the u.n. and to folks like me. >> to be fair, i watched netanyahu's speech. he barely mentioned the palestinian peace process. he gave it piecemeal. he was much more focused on ahmadinejad and iran. >> look, the palestinians do not pose an existential threat to israel. i think they should resolve this issue in a two-state solution. iran, one bomb could destroy israel as one of the heads of iran recently said. if one bomb were dropped on israel it would destroy israel forever. israel might retaliate and kill 10 or 20 million muslims but there are 110 million of them. so israel has to put the iranian situation first. that's correct. i think they are actually related in some way. i do think that if the israelis do make it a good peace offer and if they can resolve this with their own security intact, it will help create an international consensus against iran. >> let me bring in dan senor.
on the run inside the country, half of them children according to the u.n. and expected by the end of this year, some 700,000 people will have fled to neighboring countries and become refugees. it's in this climate that we entered syria. we went as you said with the syrian -- the free syrian army and we passed through the checkpoint we noticed they very much wanted to let it be known they were in charge. their flags were flying, they were in charge of the checkpoint. as we went with them towards aleppo, we saw bread lines, massive numbers of tanks, disabled tanks that were left over from the government, and we also say lots of bombed out buildings, so we saw lots of damage. what's happening is this free syrian army is in charge of pockets of land and they're trying to hold on to it. as we got closer to aleppo, andrea, we saw air strikes. we saw the evidence of air strikes not too far away and we met up with a commander of some 2500 soldiers, rebels essenti essential essentially, fighting under him in aleppo and he talked about -- he was complaining about the use of aerial strikes b
that turkey has now asked the u.n. security council to take, quote, necessary actions against syria to stop these kind of attacks. it's interesting that that alliance meeting was called under article 4 of the nato charter as you know an attack by one is an attack by all under article 5 of that charter. it's significant that turkey has not yet invoked article 5. but, again, syria crossed the line with this mortar attack into turkish civilian areas. just as they did when they shot down a turkish fighter jet in international waters earlier this year. >> we are outraged that the syrians have been shooting across the border. we are very we getful about the loss of life that has occurred on the turkish side. we are working with our turkish friends. i will be speaking with the foreign minister later to discussion what the best way forward would be. >> so, shepard, at this late hour tonight, it's not clear where all of this is heading. >> of course, jennifer, we all know the nightmare scenario is that what is happening in syria becomes a regional conflict, not that that's begun, it certainly hasn't

of the european union and you can see the u.n. security council has fallen back into a kind of paralysis. you could look at the international trading environment and wonder about that. to me, and this is the answer to the question, and john would agree, the world in which the denied states is still strong but all the institutions are eroding is not a world i want to live in and therefore the united states does have an interest in trying its best to show up these institutions. >> bob is coming my way. this is great. >> a couple quick points. number one, my thesis is not that these institutions are independent. they are in fused with power and instruments of power and they are used to signal limits on power, power is never divorced from institutions. and in that regard, i argue that the u.s. has been so great on the world stage because it's tied the power to the institutions that spoke to make power more durable and expensive, but also making it more limited and less based on the indiscriminate arbitrary use of power in the traditional sense. so there is an argument about how the institutions c
, the administration went out, probably too early with an incomplete report from the u.n. ambassador susan rice on "meet the press" and other programs and now are being called to task. the security in benghazi was very, very thin. and we have the situation where there was clear -- there were clear warnings. what does the administration do? how do they handle these inquiries? >> first of all there's an investigation under way. it's an accountability board that's looking into it. the first thing is, they probably need to pick up the pace because in the first place, you have people really rushing out to try to give an account and often the first counts are wrong. and so i think they've taken a hit for that. now they're going to take a hit unless they get moving on the accountability review board and try to get something out there that is -- explainable. and frankly i think there are a lot of issues there to look at. the question of security, the question of, you know, the whole issue of whether benghazi was butnd down. i don't think this is really a presidential issue. i mean the notion that the p

in all these other areas. gregg: what white house press secretary jay carney and u.n. ambassador susan rice were telling the american people, not to mention the folks on capitol hill, was simply untrue. they were doing that for more than a week as we mentioned. now the latest offering up an explanation is general james clapper, the director of national intelligence. and here's his explanation and or excuse depending upon your point of view. we'll put it on the screen. in the immediate aftermath of the assault there was information that led us to assess that the attack began spontaneously following protests recaller that day at our embassy in cairo. do you buy that or is clapper being used trying to protech the president's reputation? what do you think? >> i think clapper has been wrong on several occasions. so there's a scramble to protect this narrative. i think the other really damaging piece here that he doesn't confront is that the state department clearly knew from ambassador stevens's cable that is the threat was growing and that ambassador stevens himself was worried about his s
